The Irish Forum for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy  

 

Conference with Dr. Judy Gammelgaard

 

 

Saturday 29 March 2014

 

 

Betweenity: Understanding the Distorted World of Borderline Relationships

 

 

Judy Gammelgaard is author of Betweenity: A Discussion of the Concept of Borderline (Routledge, London, 2010), and of numerous psychoanalytic articles informed by French psychoanalytical theorists and D.W. Winnicott.  She is Professor and Head of the Centre of Psychoanalysis at the Department of Psychology, University of Copenhagen; is a training analyst and a member of the Danish Psychoanalytic Society, and of the International Psychoanalytical Association. 

  

She deals particularly with the difficulties of  those who cannot benefit from 'good experiences' in therapy or in life owing to the distortions which arise in their close relationships. She addresses the dynamics underlying  their suspended limbo existence owing to lack of internal (good) object representation which produces defensive relational forms informed by 'the logic of desperation and the logic of indifference'.

 

In addition to the conference presentation, Dr. Gammelgaard will attend a viewing of the film Shame (directed by Steve McQueen) on Friday evening, 28th March 2014 in Filmbase, Curved Street, Temple Bar, Dublin.  She has previously published a film essay on Lars von Trier's "Antichrist" and will participate in the ensuing panel discussion.
